The Centre for Criminal Justice Reform and Research, NALSAR is organising a talk "Life and Law in Delhi's Terrorism Trials" by Dr Mayur Suresh, a Senior Lecturer at the School of Law at SOAS. In this session, the Speaker looks at another way of approaching an ethnography of the trial process. Through his ethnography of terrorism trials in Delhi, he argues that the mundane technical aspects of the trial can engender modes of sociality within the trial process.
